My little blog is 1 year old!!!

So my lovelies, I can’t believe I am writing this post. Passionsandpreening is 1 year old today. It started off as a passion and it has remained a passion. I have made some wonderful friends from this and I know these will be people that will continue to be in my life for a long time. Having people in my life that have the same passion as me for the latest lipstick or lifestyle issues has done wonders for me as a person.

Due to illness I don’t work and this has given me a purpose for getting up in the morning so for that I thank the blogging community. I would have never got the courage if it wasn’t for a few very special men in my life, my husband told me I could do it and Dave Lackie and Jeff Smith two amazing talented men in Canada gave me the push I needed. Dave is the Editor of a magazine and we got chatting through twitter and Jeff spurred me on with amazing chats and to this day and forever more I will be grateful to these 3 men. One friend that needs a special mention is Joanne she is like my little personal cheerleader always sharing, commenting etc, so thanks Joanne you really are amazing.

Some people blog for freebies and recognition I blog for the freedom it gives me to chat about things I love!  I wish I could say it’s all been plain sailing but trust me it hasn’t. People thinking blogging is easy that’s laughable. Getting the right lighting for pics, thinking of original content and dealing with the technical side of it was something I still struggle with, but you know what I wouldn’t change a bit of it.

So I just wanted to say onwards and upwards for my wee blog with hopefully exciting things for my second year!!

Love to each and every one of you who have helped me along the way
